The mornings in the mountains are magical. The scents of pine trees, the sound of streams, and the song of forest birds complete the view of the high mountain peaks painted with the most beautiful colors of the morning. I can’t imagine a better start of the day.

Snowy Hallstatt Lake

As you might have guessed, New Year’s holidays have brought me a lot of unexpected commitments. I did not finish the advertised text about Rila National Park in time for the announced term.

Fireworks of Autumn colors

I first visited Golija, the mountain in southwestern Serbia, many years ago. I remember it as it happened today – I was reading texts and travel books on one bike tour site. Among the many offers for all the possible bike tours that you may imagine, one caught my eye in particular. The title sounded bombastic as if it were created up by some marketing specialist: “Fireworks of autumn colors!”. Here, Golija was advertised as…
